Yes, you're right about that links to systemctl. Unfortunately there
no magic related to shutdown/halt/power off in systemctl, it all
reboot() syscall through libc. Your problem lays probably somewhere
kernel and might be ACPI related (it was very common sometime ago).
Does your 32 bit and 64 bit boxes are the same or different machines?
Different. The 32-bit is a laptop running Fedora 16. The 64-bit is a
DVR (or will be, once I resolve the no sound problem)
